Buried into a picturesque landscape, one indeed of the most amazing in the entire south eastern side of Sicily, along the Dirillo River valley, and on the borderline between the town of Licodia Eubea and the Iblea province, the land of Giurfo is situated in a wide area rich of history and traditions. Thanks to its ideal climate, the heterogeneous composition of its soil, and the unique sunlight exposure, the vineyards and olive groves carefully and wisely cultivated, generously produce wines and oils which are rich in fragrances and flavors typical of this area.

Frappato DOC Vittoria

Frappato could derive from the mispronunciation of the word "fruity", to indicate the most striking feature of the wine made from this grape variety. It is cultivated mainly in Ragusa where it produces Frappato of Victoria and, along with the Nero d' Avola, Cerasuolo di Vittoria. Frappato vine is very old, the earliest records date it back to the eighteenth century, and seems to come from the Iberian Peninsula.
